Acer looking to produce quad-core tablets

One of the benefits of the Android ecosystem is that it invites hardware manufacturers to produce devices at a variety of price points, an invitation not loss on Acer. While many people focus on the high end, top-tier devices, eventually that cutting-edge technology trickles down to eventually become part of the budget tier of devices as we are seeing with some Acer hardware. According to reports, Acer is working on plans to produce 8- and 10-inch tablets running on quad-core MediaTek processors with “aggressive” price points. Readers may recall Acer showing off the Acer Iconia B1-A71 tablet at CES with a planned retail price less than $150 dollars. These new quad-core tablets from Acer will join that device for buyers on a budget. Linxian Lang, president of Acer’s Greater China unit, thinks the strategy of producing tablets across a wide spectrum of price points, including the low-end, will help Acer regain momentum in the tablet market.
